About me

Desktop publishing (abbreviated DTP) is the creation of documents using page layout skills on a personal ("desktop") computer primarily for print. Desktop publishing software can generate layouts and produce typographic quality text and images comparable to traditional typography and printing. This technology allows individuals, businesses, and other organizations to self-publish a wide range of printed matter. Desktop publishing is also the main reference for digital typography. When used skillfully, desktop publishing allows the user to produce a wide variety of materials, from menus to magazines and books, without the expense of commercial printing. Desktop publishing combines a personal computer and WYSIWYG page layout software to create publication documents on a computer for either large scale publishing or small scale local multifunction peripheral output and distribution. Desktop publishing methods provide more control over design, layout, and typography than word processing. However, word processing software has evolved to include some, though by no means all, capabilities previously available only with professional printing or desktop publishing. My lessons are in comparisons with word processing, comparisons with other electronic layout software, and comparisons with web design.  Tutoring takes place in regard to applications as well - web-based applications. Tutoring may also regard the desktop publishing software that presently exists including Adobe FrameMaker, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe InDesign, Adobe Muse, Adobe PageMaker, Adobe Photoshop, Apple Pages, Banner Mania, Corel Ventura, Macromedia FreeHand, Microsoft PowerPoint, Microsoft Publisher, Microsoft Word, etc. Students must advise as to what their tutoring purposes are and where they need help. I have five years of tutoring in desktop publishing.
